QUANTITY

DETAILS

Head-Box DS is based on the former SE model, which has a very good sound quality, but only one analogue input. So we kept a similar concept, improved the power supply and added a high-quality digital section! It's USB input works up to 24/192 in asynchronous mode! Playback for any headphone offers realistic sound-staging on all volume levels for 3 digital and 1 analogue sound source. Head Box DS also provides a high-quality front display, that gives full information on current status. Luxury aluminium faceplate is available in silver or black finish.  

Can it be used as a DAC? Yes, internal D/A conversion offers additional RCA line output that can be used with any hifi-system as cost-effective sound upgrade for existing digital sound sources. As DAC Box DS, Head Box DS uses feedback loop for controlling computer and amount of data sent. This allows implementation of a high quality, fixed frequency clock directly in the DAC section to keep jitter as low as possible.  

• Audiophile grade headphone amp & 24bit D/A conversion  
• 3 digital inputs: Asynchronous USB 2.0, S/PDIF, Toslink  
• Special USB-2.0 driver for 24/192 (24/96 with USB1.1)  
• Ultra low-noise semiconductors  
• SMD technology for short signal paths  
• Analogue output (RCA) for use as D/A converter  
• Analogue input (RCA)  
• Headphone socket (6,3mm jack plug)  
• DC power supply (< 1 watt standby power)  
• Metal case shields the electronics from vibrational and electromagnetic interference  
• Faceplate black
